Multilevel Research in the Field of Organizational Behavior

September 24, 2013 715

Patrícia Lopes Costa, Ana Margarida Graça, Pedro Marques-Quinteiro, Catarina Marques Santos, António Caetano, and Ana Margarida Passos, all of the Instituto Universitário de Lisboa in Portugal, published “Multilevel Research in the Field of Organizational Behavior An Empirical Look at 10 Years of Theory and Research” in SAGE Open. The abstract:

During the last 30 years, significant debate has taken place regarding multilevel research. However, the extent to which multilevel research is overtly practiced remains to be examined. This article analyzes 10 years of organizational research within a multilevel framework (from 2001 to 2011). The goals of this article are (a) to understand what has been done, during this decade, in the field of organizational multilevel research and (b) to suggest new arenas of research for the next SGO_72ppiRGB_150pixWdecade. A total of 132 articles were selected for analysis through ISI Web of Knowledge. Through a broad-based literature review, results suggest that there is equilibrium between the amount of empirical and conceptual papers regarding multilevel research, with most studies addressing the cross-level dynamics between teams and individuals. In addition, this study also found that the time still has little presence in organizational multilevel research. Implications, limitations, and future directions are addressed in the end.
